My first show was in '87, but at least I respected my elders and ALWAYS tried to guide youngers as much as they'd be guided. All you do is yap yap yap about who you hate. F--k off. Go somewhere else & continue your cream puff war. Same goes for EVERY Deadhead who complains about "the newbies" or "the dirtsurfers"--what does that even mean? You're a dirtSUCKER, and a sh-tTALKER and nothing else. The definition of an a--hole is something that nothing comes out of but sh-t, and that's YOU. Get some perspective and look in the mirror if you need to find something to loathe.
As for the show and recording: how is this AUD recording available in stream form only? I have a sinking feeling... Anyway, the recording is not good enough to hear if the show is any good.

A beautiful summer day/night at RFK. always a mellow scene, the ticketless hordes *really* started to ruin things in 94...set opener was halfstep, always nice, into a respectable little red rooster. a little pause, then a nice surprise, Tom Thumb's blues, sung and played really well by Phil (always a treat). Jerry, not to be outdone, follows up with an Althea, nice and slow, sultry even... Weir keeps things going with a strong Cassidy, the jam before the final verse was better than the previous few i had seen...then a pregnant pause, and Cumberland, one of my absolute favorites... The band did not disappoint, this Cumberland was smoking hot, with fiery leads by Garcia! danced my ass off! the Promised land closer was also smoking, seemed to me that Garcia did not want to stop playing.
Second set was a nice flow, going in time with the sunset, mellow... The uncle John's band brought tears to my eyes...I didn't like Corrina when it first came out, but the jam at the end was always expanding.
How many bad things can you say about a show that ends with The Weight?
Tomorrow night, though not as fiery, was another good show. ahhhh.

Subject: One of better RFK shows in 90s
I may be in the minority, but I would have paid real money to smash the shit out of Hornsby's accordian. so annoying. I love his piano playing, but can't stand his voice. also agree that the show was about average. highlights here & there, but not solid throughout. 3 stars tops.

I didnât have a ticket for this show... My friends all had tickets but I only mail ordered for the second show 6/26/93 (which was great too!)... It was like it was meant to happen.. We get out of the car and I made a sign, placed it on the windshield of the car while we were getting things together and a guy walks up and has a ticket! Woohoo! So anyway, Cumberland was awesome well, And don't even get me started on Birdsong! Come to think of it.. everything was just so ON.... The weight... All I can picture in my head is Jerryâs hair blowing in the wind... It was just amazing to me... And under the bridge was nuts!!! I remember everyone âmoo-ingâ As we tried to get throughâ¦.

Subject: Ahhh the memories...
Subject: The best show I saw
Subject: Poor quality
Bruce on accordion was a nice addition.
Good AUD recording for a staduim show.
Sounds exactly like the source analog I had right after the RFK stand.
Subject: don't read the other review.
